From Hallwatch: Reading what you write... into law.

Hallwatch, the Philly and PA political and ethical watchdog, has something right now on the practice of the PA legislature to pass 'stealth legislation.' Basically, as with the "Leave No Billboard Behind Act," members of PA House or Senate will thrown an awful amendment onto a bill at the very last second, not telling the other side of the aisle what the amendment means, and giving people less than hour to debate it. It is an awful, awful process that needs to be changed.

Important State laws should be debated publicly, not ramrodded through in the dead of night. Go to Hallwatch and see what you can quickly do to help end this awful practice.

And yeah, I am not at work today, and have a little too much free time.
